Colorful, Caribbean Bocas del Toro in Panama has always been legendary.

Dreamy, surreal, and seductive, Bocas Town will capture your heart with its coconut groves and blue-green water. Slow down and soak up the Caribbean vibes: islands, reefs, and beaches may draw you in, but it’s the energy that will make you want to linger. At night, enjoy live music at the venue, then head out to Bocas Town for some beer, rum, and reggae. From here, the world is your oyster.

Panama

Panama is bordered by Costa Rica to the west, Colombia (in South America) to the southeast, the Caribbean Sea to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. The capital and the largest city is Panama City, whose metropolitan area is home to nearly half of the country's four million people. Panamanians believe in general that the word Panama means "abundance of fish, trees, and butterflies". Panama's tropical environment supports an abundance of plants. Forests dominate, interrupted in places by grasslands, scrub, and crops and the wildlife are the most diverse in Central America. It is home to many South American species as well as to North American wildlife.

The culture is reflected in traditional products, such as woodcarvings, ceremonial masks, and pottery, as well as in Panama's architecture, cuisine, and festivals. In earlier times, baskets were woven for utilitarian uses, but now many villages rely almost exclusively on income from the baskets they produce for tourists. Panamanian cuisine is a mix of African, Spanish, and Native American techniques, dishes, and ingredients, reflecting its diverse population.

Panama has some of the best surf breaks in all of Central America! Whether you like point breaks, beach breaks, hollow tubes, or long peelers, Panama has a variety of surf breaks to accommodate your style. Panama is still virgin and you can catch most of the best surf spots by yourself with your buddies. Few people know about Panama's surfing potential, which is a big plus for surfers who visit! However, you better go soon because Panama is becoming more and more popular for surfers from around the globe.
